Chief Clinical Strategy Officer will focus on HDL, Inc.'s recent ROI study showing lowered costs, improved outcomes with company patients
BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Szilard Voros, Chief Clinical Strategy Officer of Health Diagnostic Laboratory, Inc., will present the results of a recently released study showing reduced healthcare costs and improved outcomes in patients who use HDL, Inc.'s advanced testing and health management at the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) Annual Fall Conference on Monday, Oct. 14.
Dr. Voros' presentation, Comprehensive Health Management Strategies Improve Outcomes and Reduce Cost of Care, offers insight into how HDL, Inc.'s advanced cardiometabolic testing paired with follow-up health management by clinically licensed health consultants resulted in a 23 percent decrease in a patient's overall healthcare costs and an improved lipid profile in just two years compared to those patients who did not use HDL, Inc. testing and follow-up health management services. Results of the independent study, conducted over three years by Wilmington, Del.-based HealthCore, were published in September in Population Health Management.
"As healthcare leaders seek to improve outcomes and lower the cost of total care with models such as the patient-centered medical home, our ROI study shows that clinical laboratory and health management providers play an important role in the coordination and design of patient care plans to achieve those goals," Dr. Voros said. "Providers and payers that are entering shared savings initiatives should consider the role ancillary service providers with comprehensive care models such as HDL, Inc. offer to both manage costs and improve overall health of patients."
